Johann Huebner

Johann Huebner (1668-1731) was a German geographer and scholar who taught by his own question and answer method. He was one of the first to teach the subject of geography in schools. His Questions and Answers to Geography, was published in 1693. His method using a system of letters on blank maps coded to a separate key list was employed in one of the earliest school atlases.

Huebner collaborated with the firm of Johann Babtist Homann in Nuremberg to publish the Atlas Scholasticus in 1732.
